Press Release: Transcend Unveils 2GB 240-pin DDR2-1066 aXeRam Overclocking Memory Dual-Channel Kit

Taipei, October 4, 2007

Transcend, a global leader in the manufacture of high performance memory modules, is proud to unveil its latest product: a 2GB DDR2-1066 aXeRam Dual-Channel Overclocking Memory Kit. Just like its predecessor, DDR2-800 aXeRam, it uses premium chips and offers unrivaled performance. Designed with gamers and power users in mind, aXeRam memory delivers superior overclocking performance while maintaining rock-solid system stability.

Transcend's 2GB 240-pin DDR2-1066 aXeRam Dual-Channel Kit includes a matching pair of speed-tested and verified 1GB DDR2 1066Mhz modules with high-quality heat sinks. To ensure compatibility, the aXeRam modules use six-layer PCBs that fully comply with JEDEC (the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standards. The 240-pin DIMMs included in the kit are each made of 16 high-quality 64Mx8 DDR2 FBGA chips. Each chip is selected with the strictest quality standards and is manufactured using small Fine-Pitch Ball Grid Array (FBGA) packages to assure better thermal dissipation, electrical efficiency and improved overclocking performance. Transcend's 2GB 240-pin DDR2-1066 aXeRam includes Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP), which allows users to automatically configure EPP-enabled motherboards with aggressive memory settings for better memory and system performance.

Transcend's 2GB DDR2-1066 aXeRam Dual-Channel Overclocking Kit's two identically matched 1GB modules are specifically designed for use in dual-channel configuration, which allows them to provide memory bandwidth up to 17GB/s. This equates to a performance increase of 32.8% compared to DDR2-800 which only manages 12.8GB/s in dual-channel mode. Enthusiasts will appreciate the included custom high-purity aluminum heat sinks' distinctive styling and superior heat diffusion characteristics. Whether playing intense 3D games or stressing your system with heavy-duty software applications, Transcend's aXeRam 2GB DDR2-1066 Dual-Channel Overclocking memory kit will give you the extra power you need – especially with Windows Vista

Transcend's memory modules are built to the highest specifications with the finest chips and materials available, and they undergo strenuous laboratory testing to ensure they provide the highest performance. All Transcend memory modules come with a lifetime warranty and the support of a global service network. They are recognized worldwide for their reliable high quality, outstanding performance, excellent compatibility, and stable operation.
